NEW THIS WEEK - September 6th, 2006:
September heralds a most nostalgic time of year.
School bells are ringing again. Abruptly, it seems, the days are shorter. The
longer, cool nights give way to crisp and dewy mornings. Fall flowers transform
gardens into carpets of bronze and gold, beckoning the trees to follow.
Thus, it's a season that beckons us to make changes as
well. We can't wait to put on warm, cozy sweaters again and to redecorate our
homes with the beautiful colors of autumn.
Take a leisurely drive through autumn byways this week
and harvest the new designs. Visit the countryside to create olde-time ad signs
of days gone by -- remember Root Beer and Maple Syrup at the village diner?
Corn, Pumpkins, Apples, and Eggs for sale?
Autumn leaf patterns create family treasures in vintage
redwork that's perfect for quilts and bed linens, kitchen towels, and table
linens. The low stitch counts are just right for busy autumn sewing days.
Free project instructions! Make an autumn welcome wreath with lace leaves
Capture the antics of charming chickadees flitting among autumn
leaves on your dining linens and fall clothing. In so many shapely designs --
circle, oval, rectangles, arch, sprays, corners -- you'll find dozens of places
for these darlings of the bird world to perch.
Harvest Trios offer a bounty of vegetables and fruit for framed art,
quilted hot pads, or placemats for the table. And, for just $1 each, quick
stitching Simple Treasures designs will round out your autumn theme.
Enjoy the sweet smells, memories, and sights of autumn, and enjoy the designs
Autumn Leaves in Vintage
Seasonal decor is a great way to freshen up a room every few
months, and embroidery pieces make wonderful family treasures.
Whether it�s bedding, kitchen linens, or decorating accessories,
children and grandchildren will recall fond memories when
placing a handed-down item in their own homes.
These designs sew quickly with low stitch counts and color changes -- the
perfect understated accent. Digitized as traditional redwork, you may sew them
all in one color. But there are three color stops so you may change the leaves
to different colors, as shown here.
